We've been invaded!!!!!

by Black Flies. Today they used us for target practice. Mom had to pick the nasty beasties off of us. Poor Ruby's face has swelled up. The doctor has given her benedryl for the itching. Mom thinks she looks like a shar pei.

We're glad Black Fly season is only for about 4 weeks.

Love Ruby & Penny

OOOOUUUUCCCCHHHHH! That doesn't look like fun. I don't think we have those here. I'm sorry you guys are having to deal with that...hopefully you will feel better soon. ~Twix

Oh noes!! Poor Ruby and Penny!

Your bites look terrible!

And little Ruby's face! That brings back memories for mom when Zoe got bit by red ants. Her face swelled up just like Ruby's.

Hang in there sweet girls! We hope your bites heal fast!

I can empathize. Black Flies are the reason we haven't been to visit my Granpawrents yes this year. You girls look beautiful as mini Shar Peis though.

I am soooo very much sorry that those horrible bugs bit you. That is awful. My mom went on the Thundershirt site. It looks a lot like my life jacket. She is thinking about sending away for a thundershirt for me. She said she MAY try putting my life vest on me and then letting Vacula out of the closet to see how that works. I don't mind my life vest at all. I have never worn it when I was not on my boat though. Thanks for the info..
I am sooo sorry about your bug bites. I don't think Mother Nature is always a very nice lady.

What kind of fly bite you, dear Ruby? I'm very sorry for that, I hope fly season finish soon.
Paws and feel better soon, please

Oh, Ruby - you made a tasty snack for those nasty black fies! We had them here - now we are into mosquito season! Mamma makes us stay indoors in the early mornings and evenings, cause that is when they come out in full force!!

Hope the benedryl takes effect - & don't scratch too much!

((hugs)) your friends

OMG, you poor girls! Mom knows how itchy those welts can be! We're thinking indoor activities for a month might be in order till the blackflies disappear! Bummer!

Love ya lots,

Oh poor you...hope those nasty flies stay away.

Are you putting anything on those bites? A dab of aloe vera gel is very soothing for them.
